From the composer:
This piece was written for my friends and colleagues in “Off Bass Brass.” My inspiration behind this piece was to showcase the group’s versatility in a fun way. The overall sound of the piece is derived from a “rock” and “jazz” influence, showing techniques like pitch bends, and utilizing an extended range not commonly expected of low brass instruments. I added drum set to this piece because quite frankly…everything sounds better with drums. My biggest hope for this piece is that one day it will be performed by a tuba/euphonium quartet somehere in deep space. I am honored to be able to share with you my first original composition, Tubacus Galacticus.
